[solved] Netwoking issue

from plasma to others/sway, networkmanager was down.
so, how can bring up network auto, not to install another nm-apple?
or, keep network connected when SDDM running?

sorry, poor english.

First define what kind of network connection you have in mind.
Is it Wifi or Ethernet?

sorry, its wifi mostly.
does netctl good choice? netplan?

I have heard there was some issues with dhcpcd lately. Can you downgrade to the previous one?

plasma fresh install, no dpcpcd previous one.

In Plasma there is a Plasma Network Manager Applet. Simply tell that to auto connect to the wifi when you login.

but im try to login sway.

I don’t know how wifi works in Sway, maybe @appelgriebsch knows, since he made the edition. :slight_smile:

Hmm if you use the sway edition image it should come with the nm-applet preinstalled and loaded during log in, so you should find it in the tray area of the waybar (top right position)…

If you just install the sway program onto a different flavor of ManjaroARM you might miss all the customizations and autostart applications that will give you a desktop kind of experience…

dont want install others nm-applet, just bring up network after boot.

Network manager also has a cli AFAIR (nm-cli)

Quit applications via Alt+Shift+Q

Check this intro post New Tech on the Blog

setup dialog stick on screen, is it a app?
that why quit sway/img.
im install plasma/sway to test wayland.

Well, if you want a network applet in Sway, you need to install one.
Else you need to use the CLI version of NetworkManager (nm-cli) to connect to your wifi.

so, when i want plasma/gnome/sway/lxqt etc, everyone need its nm-applet?

Yup there is always an app involved when using a lightweight environment such as i3 or sway… for audio it’s pavucontrol (overlays/sway/etc/skel/.config/waybar/config · master · manjaro-arm / applications / arm-profiles · GitLab)

ok, install netctl and remove networkmanager.
now, every DT are happy, thanks guys.
